Picky Eater.

Jack won’t eat his dinner 90 percent of the time. It is a rare occasion that I can get him to eat anything cooked or otherwise prepared for him. It’s hard for me to admit that Jack is such a difficult eater at the dinner table. Because I tried to diversify his pallet from the…

Happy Easter to those who celebrate, we do, though not for religious reasons. We celebrate to mark the passing of winter and entrance of summer. As I write this it is gently raining outside, the sky is dim and blue. It is an hour until jack’s bedtime and he is watching Disney’s Cars on DVD…

Recommended Reading: A Girl and Five Brave Horses.

A remarkable woman and a beautiful and important story. This book is extremely well written, it’s exciting, emotional, funny, and thought-provoking, and it’s biographical as well as historical.

I confess…

Since I’ve been working and going to school for over a year now, I have noticed myself feeling judgmental or resentful toward Jeremy as a stay at home dad. Not a lot, but on occasion, like, when the house is a wreck and Jack has done nothing but eat chips and rampage all day.  In…

End of Winter Break…

Spring semester kicks off next week, which means I’m on the last leg of my winter break. I have been enjoying a slower pace at home and at work, although I am in no way short on chores, projects, and to-do lists. I did not get as much accomplished during my break as I would…

Toki the Man Cat

Toki can best be described as a man trapped in a cat’s body, something like Salem the cat on the television series Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Of course, unlike the fictional Salem, Toki did not speak, but we always understood him well enough. Our family will never again know his equal, he was our cat, but most of all…

Winter Break

Fall semester is over, and I am presently enjoying the second of two consecutive days off. I was going to wait to blog about my fall semester until after grades have been posted, but decided that I am proud of myself regardless of grades. Like last semester I did not miss any class time or any assignments. But…

The Girl

As some of you may know, I work at a major retail store. My official position is that of a sales floor person. But in recent months I have spent a lot of shifts working up front as a cashier and customer service person. My time up front has been plagued with interesting customer encounters,…

End of Summer Cold.

Well, our family’s annual end of summer cold has descended upon us. First me, I brought it home from work I’m sure, now Jack. If I’m lucky it will skip over Jeremy and grammy.  Poor Jack is all stuffy with a low grade fever. But he’s in a very good mood overall. We’re supposed to…

Long time no post.

I have been sorely neglecting this blog. I just haven’t felt like devoting any time to it. I’m not sure why exactly. Maybe I have just gotten lazy about it now that Jack is a full blown toddler. But if you are curious for an update here goes: Jack is knee deep in the terrible…

Are we having more children?

No. I don’t think so. Birth control is my friend. Jack is a handful and half while also managing to be a miracle child. We consider ourselves extremely lucky to have him, and very fulfilled by his singular presence. Plus he’s got his mama, his dada, his Grammy, and his auntie all wrapped around his charming little…
